Bayamo is the peaceful capital of Granma province. This historically-charged area was where the revolutionaries landed in 1956 to set up rebel headquarters in the nearby Sierra Maestra mountains. This hotel channels that era.

The first thing you notice rolling up to the Hotel Sierra Maestra on the Carretera Central, 1.5km from downtown Bayamo, is its Soviet-style architecture. It’s rather big and hulking, as you might imagine.
The next thing your eyes set upon is the more than 3-meter high marble statue at the entrance. Sculpted by the Cuban artist Pedro Pulido, it proclaims: "Peace is not white, nor black, it's blue". A little cryptic perhaps, but the utility of this hotel – Bayamo’s largest – is anything but.
The spacious Hotel Sierra Maestra, with facilities such as restaurant, lobby bar, snack bar, cafeteria, swimming pool, billiard/game room, conference rooms and 116 standard rooms, is ideal for accommodating all kind of groups, especially those on environmental or nature travel programs. Several hikes are within easy reach of here, for instance.
Independent travelers, particularly those exploring the island with a rental car, will also find this a handy stopover en route to Santiago de Cuba. With a car you can easily access the historical center of Bayamo, the National Park Turquino and Manzanillo, a fishing village on the west coast of the province.
This accommodation is recommended for those interested in history and nature or for travelers who prefer to stay in a more rural setting.
